Firefox searching in edit text boxes

Hi all,

I would like Firefox to be able to search also in edit boxes when I search on a page. For example, if I search (with Edit->Find, or F3) for 'xyzzy' on this page while I am typing this message I get no matches even though I have just typed it.

Does anyone know how to search in edit text boxes in Firefox?

Your help is appreciated,
Mark Byers.
